I am having trouble with websites thinking my desktop is a mobile. I am trying to upload documents to a Government Department and it won't let me. I tried entering a competition but same result - it thinks I am a mobile. I cannot access my Qantas account or my bank accounts. Firefox must be doing something to block these?

How can I override the Secure Connection Failed issue? I just lost a connection *I am sure* is secure enough to browse safely. I have been using this site for many years. Mozilla is the only browser that does this and it's my favorite browser, but it's getting to the point of uselessness.

I have been downloading files from wetransfer.com for years without any problem. The download now fails, although, if I send it to another computer there is no problem. Is Firefox blocking the download, and if so how can I get it back?

Why does Firefox take too much time to load/open

I'm using a desktop with Win 10, i7, 16GB mem, 1TB hdd, hardwired internet @ 200mbps. For the past 2-3 days, when I click on the Firefox icon nothing opens for as much as 2 mins. All I get is the link in the top bar. It also happens when I try to change accounts, both using Firefox. I have absolutely no problem using Chrome to access my two accounts. If I close Firefox using the small X on the top line, next time I click on the icon what comes up is a blank page with previous sites used. When I click on one, same thing - takes forever to load/open. I uninstalled/reinstalled yesterday, no help. What do I need to do to fix it short of permanently eliminating Firefox?

Hi,

I've been looking everywhere to cancel the automatic download of files into the "download" folder when I ONLY need to open them for a short usage from a web page . Now I've got to manually wipe out the "download" folder on my computer... very annoying as now I sometimes don't know which files I've download and which have been put there from a Open only action. Why do I have to use another folder for my download than Firefox for temporary files???

I want to know if Firefox will go back with that stupid idea or if I need to look for another browser?

Thank you

Nicolas

Only happening on the profile/account page is showing up all in spanish. All the other pages for example, this page where we ask our questions, and every other page loads in the correct language that I have it set too English. I am in desperate need since I have to verify suspicious activity and devices but I can't since I do not read or understand another language.

Using Windows 11 and want to set Gmail as my mailto option when clicking on email links on websites. Under Firefox/Settings/Mailto I no longer see the option for Gmail, not an expert on technical matters so I have googled the problem but still can't find a solution. Do I need to find an App on Windows or perhaps an Extension within Firefox, feeling completely lost at the moment.

Hi. I know my firefox account email: [email]@gmail.com and firefox account password: won't type it here, but i know it and have entered it successfully.

After i sign in, with the correct email and password, it states i need to access the verification code and enter it to use my firefox account. the problem is that i just reinstalled windows and the gmail password was autogenerated and stored within my firefox account. so in order for me to access my gmail to retrieve the verification code i need to access the passwords stored on my firefox account.

I have a number of autogenerated passwords related to my college assessments that are time sensitive. I need help with this urgently!

Thank you, Phillip Shields

Since about a month, the download dialog pops up multiple times a day (seems randomly; I did not download anything manually). If the list of downloaded files (history in download dialog) is not empty, it pops up and stays. If the list of downloaded files is empty, it also pops up randomly and immediately disappears again.

I searched for this issue and found out that the automatically popping up download dialog can be disabled with `browser.download.alwaysOpenPanel=false`. Unfortunately, this is not what I want because the dialog should pop up when a download has been completed - but not randomly.

I would like to find out why this happens because I am a bit afraid that this may be malicious behavior (e.g., triggered by an extension). Do you have any idea where this behavior comes from or how to figure this out? Are there appropriate logs to take a look at? Can I see somehow which Firefox components are active at which point in time?

I recently changed the Privacy & Security settings in Firefox v100.0.2 (Mac) to "Enable HTTPS-Only Mode in all Windows". Since that change, even though Google is my default search engine, all searches take me to a window that says: "You’ve enabled HTTPS-Only Mode for enhanced security, and a HTTPS version of www.searchbaron.com is not available." I did a google search and the recommendation was to delete the searchbaron extension in Extensions but there isn't one there. I like the security of only going to https sites and if possible would like to keep that setting.

Does anyone know what is going on and how I can fix this? Thanks.
